Who We Are

The Freedman Center was established in 2005, and is located on the first floor of KSL with state-of-the-art equipment. The Freedman Center supports digital scholarship, multimedia & digitalization, printing services and collaboration commons. You can print your research poster here, and use ArcGIS and SPSS software to map your data. CaseLearns classes can help you learn how to do many things with multimedia.
